Blood Pressure Side Effects

I have tried 5 different Blood Pressure Medications. All are giving me side effects of depression, loss of energy, trouble concentrating, joint pain, swelling, weight gain. Anyone here know of a Blood Pressure Medication with few side effects? ## Hello, Julie! How are you? I understand what you're going through. I rant the gamut of them myself, it took about a year to finally find ones that worked for me, without making me totally miserable. Thus, the ones I suggest you speak to your doctor about are Atacand and Labetalol, with the latter being known to cause the least side effects.

Is there anything else I can help...

Found a peach capsual tablet with C on the one side and S | 1 on the other side what is this ..... Crying out for help right now ## Based on the description provided, the closest match I could locate is an oblong-shaped peach pill marked with an "A" on one side of a score line and "CS" on the other.

Do you happen to have any additional information on where you found this tablet or who it was purchased from? This information could also provide more clues as to what type of drug it might be. I'm hoping that the info above can at least help to narrow down your search....

drugs for high blood pressure

Two doctors have told me to take atacand 8mg, lisinopril 5mg, and metroprol succ. 25mg for my slightly high blood pressure. Do they do the same thing is this overkill? sjr ## I honestly believe that taking those 3 different medications for 1 condition is a 'prescription overkill' as I like to call it. There are many natural alternatives for Blood Pressure control that in my opinion can be just as effective as prescription medication, with little to no side effects. I personally had high blood pressure, but was able to control it by controlling my eating habits and exercising. What works for me may not work for everyone, but my initial advice is to look into natural ways such as: Low sodium foods to help reduce inflammation; supplementation of garlic, fish oils, as well as calciu...
